The Internet is Your Friend, But Stay Off Social Media
In times of anxiety, the black hole that is twitter becomes all too alluring. Scoping out the latest updates of the virus becomes almost instinctive. Thirty minutes becomes an hour, and an hour becomes two. Your thumb can’t seem to refrain from refreshing the page and suddenly your eyes start hurting from staring at the screen for so long. Do yourself a favour and limit your time on social media and use the internet for better.
Meditating during challenging times such as these can aid in easing the mind and meditation centres around the world have opened up their services to the internet. The Lincoln Center’s Opera and Ballet have followed in suit, streaming their shows live on their website. The best part? It’s free. YouTube still remains an incredible source to find random, informative documentaries that can help you learn a new thing or two.
The bottom line, keep yourself stimulated by remembering that there’s more to the internet than twitter and Instagram. Having access to the internet during quarantine is a great time to learn about all the things you’ve been wanting to. Social media is certainly not the limit.
